Regardless of their hypothetical future success, Uber’s recent announcement of plans to hire one million female drivers within the next five years shows that they are a forward thinking and dynamic company in some aspects that other organizations, such as traditional yellow cab companies, are lacking in.

Are Environmentalists Learning How to Battle Big Oil from Their Northern Neighbors?

By aligning these geographically and ideologically disparate groups into a united front, American environmentalists make the green movement stronger and more inclusive. But the greatest achievement they stand to make in their struggle against big oil is assimilating a particularly American concern: land rights and ownership. This may invite the participation of certain demographics like American conservatives and independents that until now have kept their distance from the green movement. The irony is if they do, it may be by following in the footsteps of Canadians.

Farewell to the Newsroom

If news shows like “News Night" actually existed we would have a better-informed populace, which would lead to a smarter electorate, better government, and a better world as a whole (in theory).

So, why did this show limp through a short run on air when Sorkin’s previous projects had so much success that even my dog can quote “you can’t handle the truth?”
